Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: June 22, 2017.
Charlotte Hornets: Harry Giles, PF, Duke
- Harry Giles was a top 5 prospect back at the beginning of the year. The Hornets can get him for depth here considering how much value he provides.
Previous Pick: Dillon Brooks, SF, Oregon
Phoenix Suns: Caleb Swanigan, PF, Purdue
- The Phoenix Suns get a power forward here. The 6-9 250 lb Caleb Swanigan is the pick here unless he withdraws from the 2017 NBA Draft as he compliments Josh Jackson well at power forward. Swanigan averaged 18.5 points per game and 12.5 rebounds per game and he compliments Marques Chriss who the Suns drafted at 4 last year very well in a depth role.
Orlando Magic: Tyler Dorsey, SG, Oregon
- The Magic have Tyler Dorsey as one of their top 3 shooting guards on their board. They also have a pretty good shooting guard with Fournier as well so they can get Dorsey for depth here. Tyler Dorsey who had 14.6 points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game, and 1.7 assists per game. Dorsey improved as a scorer during his sophomore season and would be a role player for the Magic here since his defense needs some work.
Previous Pick: Semi Ojeleye, SF, SMU
Sacramento Kings: D.J. Wilson, PF, Michigan
- The Sacramento Kings get a power forward for depth here. D.J. Wilson is considered a first round prospect by some teams despite averaging a meager 11 points per game.
Orlando Magic: Ike Onigbogu, C, UCLA
- Orlando gets a center for depth. Ike Onigbogu is considered a top 15 pick by some, but he has second round tape which is why I have him dropping 20 spots from his projected draft position.
Previous Pick: Derrick White, SG, Colorado
Philadelphia 76ers: OG Anunoby, SF, Indiana
- Philadelphia should get OG Anunoby coming off a season ending injury expecting a steal. OG Anunoby is fantastic value at this point.
Previous Pick: Tyler Dorsey, SG, Oregon
Boston Celtics: Jordan Bell, PF, Oregon
- The Boston Celtics need a starting power forward. Jordan Bell averaged 10.9 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game as a 6-9 225 lb power forward at Oregon.
Chicago Bulls: Mathias Lassort, PF, Nanterre
- The Chicago Bulls get a power forward for depth with lots of players set to be restricted Free Agents at the power forward position. Mathias Lassort averaged 10.3 points per game and 7.2 rebounds per game for Nanterre over in France.
Philadelphia 76ers: Damyean Dotson, SG, Houston
- The 76ers need an upgrade at shooting guard. Damyean Dotson is a good shooting guard for Philadelphia to take here. Dotson has an excellent shooting chart which is why I moved him up on my board.
Previous Pick: Frank Jackson, PG, Duke
New Orleans Pelicans: P.J. Dozier, SF, South Carolina
- The 6-6 200 lb P.J. Dozier is versatile enough to play small forward or shooting guard. The Pelicans need upgrades at both positions.
Atlanta Hawks: Kyle Kuzma, PF, Utah
- Atlanta can draft a power forward to replace Paul Millsap down the road. Kyle Kuzma is the top power forward available at this point.
Previous Pick: Edmond Sumner, PG, Xavier
Utah Jazz: Dwayne Bacon, SF, Florida State
- The Jazz take the best player on the board. Dwayne Bacon would have been a first round pick last year. He goes in the second round of a deeper NBA Draft Class. The Jazz can take Bacon because he has the versatility to play both small forward and shooting guard after averaging 17.2 points per game.
Houston Rockets: Nigel Williams-Goss, PG, Gonzaga
- Houston gets a point guard that compliments James Harden well. Gonzaga point guard Nigel Williams-Goss is one of the best point guard at 6-5 195 lbs. Nigel Williams-Goss averaged 18.6 points per game, 6 rebounds per game, 4.7 assists per game, a .486 field goal percentage, a .368 three point percentage, and a .867 free throw percentage.
Previous Pick: Frank Mason, PG, Kansas
New York Knicks: Thomas Bryant, C, Indiana
- The Knicks need a starting center. Thomas Bryant is extremely talented and you can argue he warrants late first round consideration here.
Houston Rockets: Jonathan Jeanne, C, Nancy
- Houston gets a center for depth. he 7-2 210 lb Jonathan Jeanne averaged 13.7 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game for Nancy's Basketball team in France. Jonathan Jeanne may have some sort of medical issue which is why the Lakers traded for Brook Lopez. The Rockets get Jeanne here though.
Previous Pick: Ike Onigbogu, C, UCLA
Philadelphia 76ers: Cameron Olivier, PF, Nevada
- Philadelphia can draft a third power forward for depth. Cameron Olivier is the top power forward available at this point.
Previous Pick: Kyle Kuzma, PF, Utah
Indiana Pacers: Jake Wiley, SF, Eastern Washington
- Jake Wiley has the versatility to play both small forward and power forward. He averages 21 points per game and is a great addition for the Pacers here in case Paul George gets traded.
Milwaukee Bucks: Nigel Hayes, PF, Wisconsin
- The Bucks worked out Nigel Hayes. I can see Milwaukee taking the hometown Badger here.
Denver Nuggets: Tony Bradley, C, North Carolina
- Tony Bradley needs to come off the boards by now. Denver has a first round grade on him so they can take him as a backup center to Jokic to replace Mason Plumlee here even after getting Zach Collins.
Previous Pick: Bam Adebayo, C, Kentucky
Philadelphia 76ers: Anzejs Pasecniks, C, Gran Canaria
- The 76ers take another center for depth. He can be a third string center to begin and if the 76ers trade Okafor Adebayo can become Embiid's backup.
Denver Nuggets: Frank Jackson, PG, Duke
- Denver gets a point guard that can defend well. Frank Jackson is the top point guard on the board here and he can average up to 11 points per game like Brandon Knight with the right coaching.
Previous Pick: Devin Robinson, SF, Florida
Washington Wizards: Devin Robinson, SF, Florida
- The Washington Wizards have a starting five. They can take the best player available for depth here.
Previous Pick: Cameron Olivier, PF, Nevada
Boston Celtics: Eric Mika, C, BYU
- Eric Mika averages 20 points per game. Boston can get him for depth here.
Phoenix Suns: Kennedy Meeks, C, North Carolina
- Suns get a center for depth. Kennedy Meeks out of North Carolina is someone the Suns can consider here.
Previous Pick: Tony Bradley, C, North Carolina
Utah Jazz: T.J. Williams, PG, Northeastern
- The Jazz get a point guard and T.J. Williams is a small school kid that averaged 21.4 points per game, 4.7 rebounds per game, and .3 assists per game at Northeastern. T.J. Williams is someone the Jazz can consider here.
Previous Pick: Damyean Dotson, SG, Houston
Boston Celtics: Sindarius Thornwell, SG, South Carolina
- Boston gets a shooting guard for depth. Sindarius Thornwell is awesome value at this point.
Brooklyn Nets: Isaiah Hicks, PF, North Carolina
- Brooklyn gets a power forward here. Isaiah Hicks did well during his Senior season at North Carolina.
Previous Pick: Monte Morris, PG, Iowa State
New York Knicks: Jarron Blossomgate, SF, Clemson
- The Knicks get their eventual replacement to Carmelo Anthony here. I had a first round grade on Blossomgate at one point.
San Antonio Spurs: Frank Mason, PG, Kansas
- San Antonio gets a point guard to groom behind Tony Parker. Frank Mason averaged 20.9 points per game and provided outstanding leadership during his NCAA career at Kansas.
Previous Pick: Andrew Jones, PG, Texas
Atlanta Hawks: L.J. Peak, SG, Georgetown
- Atlanta gets a shooting guard for depth here. L.J. Peak is a good option in the second round.
